Which fascinating fact is actually a fib?

  1. A spring peeper’s throat pouch, which is used to make the frog’s namesake call, can wear out and leak like a flabby balloon.
  2. In winter, a spring peeper’s body may freeze, and its heart may stop. In spring, the frogsicle thaws out, hoppy as ever.
  3. A female peeper can lay 1,200 eggs. Each is about 1 millimeter across, about as thick as 10 pages of Xplor.
